Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I cannot see out of my viewer..only blackness. This is true of the flip out viewer as well. but, the menu is visible at all times and I can scroll through and make changes. All functions seem to work. It's like the cap is over the lens.
Take a picture and download it to your computer. If the picture is also black, then this might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info (make sure you read the latest reader comments in the first link. You might get very very lucky if Canon fixes this with your model camera :-)
